Announcement – 2020 keynote speaker
We are excited to announce the keynote speaker for RACP Congress 2020, Professor Catherine Crock AM.
Professor Crock is not only a doctor at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, she is a music and theatrical producer, a humanitarian, a mother and a strong advocate for culture change in healthcare.
After identifying the direct correlation between organisational negativity and staff wellbeing and effectiveness Professor Crock founded the Hush Foundation and the Gathering of Kindness events. She is dedicated to building, nurturing and instilling a culture of kindness throughout the healthcare system.
Her two plays “Hear Me” and “Do You Know Me” have been performed in hospitals and aged care settings across Australia raising awareness of patient centred care, communication and patient safety issues and encouraging a shift in the culture and behaviour in healthcare.
Her keynote address Balancing science with humanity: how kindness restores the whole in medicine will be a not-to-be-missed highlight of RACP Congress 2020.
